Kelly in­sists he’s not leav­ing job

Las Vegas Review-Journal - - MORNING BRIEFING -

has or­ga­nized the White House more tightly and changed how peo­ple in­ter­act with the pres­i­dent.

“I re­strict no one, by the way, from go­ing in to see him,” Kelly said. “But when we go in to see him now, rather than the one­sies and twosies, we go in and help him col­lec­tively un­der­stand what — what he needs to un­der­stand to make th­ese vi­tal de­ci­sions.”

Kelly called his chief of staff po­si­tion the hard­est and the most im­por­tant job he’s ever held — but not the best one. That would be en­listed Marine sergeant in­fantry­man.

Kelly said he’s read that “I’ve been a fail­ure at con­trol­ling the pres­i­dent, or a fail­ure at con­trol­ling his tweet­ing, and all that.” But he added that he was “not brought to this job to con­trol any­thing but the flow of in­for­ma­tion to our pres­i­dent, so that he can make the best de­ci­sions.”

Kelly also chan­neled his boss by say­ing that in­ac­cu­rate me­dia re­ports are his great­est “frus­tra­tion” in the job.

He urged re­porters to “get bet­ter sources.”
